Looks amazing and from what is on youtube seems to be a good performer at the right price!

Shimano did well by replacing the handle, finally! One thing about Shimano budget conscious reels is that they share many of the features that the "expensive" models have at a Joe Fisherman price and they know that. AND there is a choice of 2 gear ratios this time.
I've always been a Caenan fan, except the cumbersome handle, but one can always swop the handle out.
They have a good seller here for us normal folk and this is an ideal entry level reel.

Awesome looking reel, I have used Shimano reels since day one and will always do.

Are there any opinions out there as to which one is better?

The outgoing model for R600 to R700...
[ATTACHMENT NOT FOUND]

Or the the new kid on the block?

The new model has 2 fewer bearings than the outgoing model.
Is the R500 extra for the new model more of a reflection of "exchange rate demons" or is it the "packed with features" sales pitch?

Old Caenan was released in USA @ $89.99 in 2010. Here is a review.

New one was released this year @ $99.99. Here is a review.

So I would say that the R500 price increase is due mainly to Zumanomics. :evil:

I wouldn't worry too much about the bb count. Lot's of cut rate reels out there with 15 bb's and they are shiyt. There are bound to be other improvements in the reel which will outweigh the difference in bb's.

Either way you decide, it's a Shimano, so you cannot go wrong. :eusa_dance:
